NENA's Impact of IoT Devices and Emergency Calling Applications Information Document describes the impact of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and emergency calling applications (apps) on 9‑1‑1. Developers of IoT devices, and developers and managers of systems that employ these devices, should consider this document in the early phases of design and development, to address the potential impact on 9‑1‑1 operations, and to assure that their implementation(s) are effective in their intended emergency notification to 9‑1‑1 services. This document discusses impacts to the operations of 9‑1‑1 system operators and PSAPs caused by emergency calls and data received from IoT devices and apps.
